Rider's Moorman Honored by the MAAC

EDISON--Freshman Nicole Moorman (Moon Township, Pa./Moon Area HS) of the Rider University volleyball team was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Rookie of the Week, it was announced Monday afternoon.

Moorman, an Elementary Education major, was honored for all matches October 8-14.

A 6-1, middle hitter, Moorman averaged 1.62 kills and 0.62 blocks per set while compiling a .323 attack percentage on the week.

"Nicole is someone that is never satisfied with her performance," said head coach Christopher Feliciano.  "She truly understands the 'team first' concept.  Every day, she works hard in practice and does whatever it takes to get better."

Moorman recorded eight kills and three blocks at Siena on October 14 after compiling five kills and two blocks at Marist on October 13.

For the season in 76 sets, Moorman is averaging 1.21 kills and 0.50 blocks per set with a .233 attack percentage.

The Broncs travel to Saint Peter's University on October 17 for a MAAC match at 7pm.  Rider (9-10, 3-7 MAAC) hosts MAAC-rival Loyola University Maryland on Saturday in Alumni Gymnasium in the annual Dig Pink match at 1pm.
